Here’s a new toddler sweater to share with you all. Made in a light-weight cotton, it can be worn as a layer in Spring and Fall, or as a jacket on cool summer evenings. It is classy enough to be worn on special occasions, yet casual enough to be paired with jeans on a cool day.
This project was inspired by a client who hired me to design & knit a gift for a friend’s child. The friends were a wealthy NYC couple and the new baby would want for nothing, so my clients thought a hand-made gift would be a good choice. Thus this classic sweater was born.
6sts x 8rows = 1 inch 2.5cm in Stockinette Stitch blocked loosely.
12m – 20” chest 50cm, 18m – 22” chest 55cm, 2T – 23” chest 58cm, 3T – 24” chest 61cm, 4T – 24.5” chest 62cm
In the 12m size there will not be enough stitches to fully complete the seed stitch panels on the front panels adjacent to the sleeves. After the first increase row you will be able to complete the seed stitch; after the second increase row you will be able to start the stockinette section between the seed stitch and the sleeves. Other sizes do not have this adjustment.
